Nationwide, on average, each year over 7,000 fatalities occur in weather-related crashes. In addition, the cost of repairing roads damaged by harsh winter weather consumes a significant portion of transportation budgets. This course presents best management practices for attempting to decrease the number of crashes caused by bad weather and for reducing associated maintenance costs. Twenty-seven case studies of systems in 22 states that improve roadway operations under inclement weather conditions are described. Each case study has six sections including a general description of the system, system components, operational procedures, resulting transportation outcomes, implementation issues, as well as contact information and references.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
